Des cartes pour décrire les pratiques des agriculteurs

We analysed the practices and decision-making processes linked to grassland management in a Belgian grassland-based livestock farming system. Our work confirmed that a social cognitive map could be drawn up for multiple loca tions. The results showed how this inductive cognitive mapping approach overcame two limitations frequently highlighted in previous studies: the diverse interpretations of variables and relationships; and the difficulty in revealing the rationale in cognitive maps.

Development of a broadened cognitive mapping approach for analysing systems of practices in social–ecological systems

This paper presents a new cognitive mapping approach for analysing systems of practices in social–ecological systems. These systems are mapped from people’s views collected during open-ended interviews. Cognitive maps are made up of diverse variables (e.g., operations, drivers, constraints)linked to each other by a range of relationships: cause–effect, fluxes of matter, information flows and sequence of two operations. Individual cognitive maps heuristically model the practices and decision-making processes expressed by interviewees. The mathematical formulation of cognitive maps allows individual cognitive maps to be aggregated into a social cognitive map. The latter can be used to model the sys- tem of practices used by a particular group of people. Using this approach, we analysed the practices and decision-making processes linked to grassland management ina Belgian grassland-based livestock farming system. Our work confirmed that a social cognitive map couldbe drawn up for multiple loca tions. The results showed how this inductive cognitive mapping approach overcame two limitations frequently highlighted in previous studies: the diverse interpretations of variables and relationships; and the difficulty in revealing the rationale in cognitive maps.

  1. Suena maravilloso, sabes mi mamá hacía un curry muy parecido en Chile y en vez de piña le ponía papayas, creoque fue un invento de ella y era esapltacucer, esto suena como un excelente sustituto hasta que consiga papayas.

  2. There is no Jewish "conspiracy," just as there is no black "conspiracy" to commit street crimes. In both cases you have genetic predispositions and tendencies for certain behaviors and activities. Rather than some top-down conspiracy, it's better to think of it as a kind of distributed genetic algorithm.

  3. "So we are either handing private prisons to make a profit off the forced labour of prisoners to GEO with a record of overseas prisoner deaths or a company associated with Guantanamo Bay."The corrections dept has a record of deaths in custody. So whats your point?

  4. i love TJ Maxx or Marshall's for home items – you never know what you may or may not find – i've found some lovely items there when i wasn't looking. and the prices are always good – i have to watch how much i get for my house or it would be over accessorised – lol. i have to make sure my husband will like it – so we keep it simple – i'm a neutral sort – so mostly tans/browns/creams/with a pop of color.

  5. Thanks for your publication. What I want to point out is that while looking for a good on-line electronics go shopping, look for a web-site with full information on important factors such as the level of privacy statement, safety details, any payment procedures, and various terms and also policies. Always take time to investigate the help and FAQ pieces to get a superior idea of how the shop performs, what they are capable of doing for you, and in what way you can take full advantage of the features.
